|CALATHES’ LONELY WORLD GUIDE TO VARNHOLD|
Situated on the Eastern side of the Northern stretch of the Tors of the Levenies, this large village is dissected by the Kiravoy River.
Most of Varnhold’s buildings are constructed of fieldstones up to a height of about 3 feet, with wooden planking and even some frame and stucco above that. The windows bear shutters and are unglazed. A few dwellings, however, are still the sod dugouts constructed in the colony’s earliest days.
Established by Maegar Varn and his auspiciously named group of loyal mercenaries, the Varnling Host, Varnhold had a population of well over a hundred.
After the kidnapping and slaying of most of the town by the Cyclops Lich, Vordekai, two years ago, Varnhold has finally started to flourish. People have returned to the town and the outlaying farms are once again busy with workers. The hostilities with the centaurs have also ceased and apart from an occasional creature from the Tors of the Levenies, life is now fairly safe in the Eastern province.
Varnhold’s economy is based on fine leather-working, carpentry and their original Cheerful Dark Stout.
